Selection of all files instead of selecting one by one on iOS
While moving files from one folder to another folder selecting all files instead of selecting one by one
This is something we’re planning to add to the app. No dates to share yet.

You can select multiple files in tile view or list view by swipe-selecting left or right.
Long-press a file (so it check-boxes one file), on any other file start swiping-without-lifting left-or-right across files and once this starts you can start swiping up and down too.
If you lift your finger you have to start swiping left-or-right on a new file, don't swipe up or down to start or it will just scroll, don't long-press a file too long or it will exit the selection and try to move the files.
Now that I solved your issue, please vote for folder path click navigation and getting paths to show in searches:
And getting the move command to use the current folder and not the root folder https://onedrive.uservoice.com/forums/913519-onedrive-on-ios/suggestions/13732845-app-behavior-when-moving-files
it is 2021 now, there is no such simple function. I need to download thousands photos to my phone.
so its April 2021 and you still have not done this then..

Is there an approximate timeline for implementing this feature?
It would be so helpful to be able to Select All or select multiple files when uploading to OneDrive from the Files app (OneDrive > “+” button > Upload > Browse) on iOS or iPadOS in the OneDrive app for files such as PDFs.
This is something that already exists for uploading image files from the Photos app (OneDrive > “+” button > Upload > Photos and Videos) in the OneDrive app.
It should have been existed from the beginning. 😱. To push users to select several hundreds files one by one there are no polite words for this. 😊
My issue is with multi select pictures to sort them into yearly albums... Imagine 23 000 of them... 😉
Please do this urgently! It is very frustrating!
Almost 2 years after your reply and still nothing ...

This is such a necessary QOL. This is a feature that should be available at launch.
Come on, this is an easy bit of coding and it's just plain lazy and user-cynical to mess about for years wasting end user's time by not implementing this.
How the **** does it take this long to sort this!
Seriously taking the proverbial....
if you can add to onedrive the option to choose many images at the same time instead of choosing one by one

Not being able to select multiple files for upload is a real disadvantage and having just purchased OneDrive, this is making me think twice.
A separate option to select all items should be made available, instead of having to select all items manually.

It should have this function at the first place, how come Microsoft team didn't notice this??? Really!?
Can Microsoft developer upgrade the software where the OneDrive apps in the phone can select all the items in the OneDrive instead of clicking the entire photos one by one on the phone. It is time consuming especially I have few hundreds of photos.
tick-tock.... tick-tock..... tick-tock....
